It does not appear there are any serious concerns about Antetokounmpo’s health. He stayed in the game and there didn’t seem to be any real worry, but you can’t blame the Bucks for being exceptionally cautious with their star player, especially considering the potential stakes of this season.
At 53-10, the Bucks are 8.5 games ahead in the race for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. It won’t be a killer if Antetokounmpo has to sit out a game or two.
